Dispatch takes another leap into digital age

Posted: April 8, 2012 - 8:12pm

Brainerd Dispatch readers now have another method of reading their daily newspaper — on their iPad. Last week, parent company Morris Communications, released the new iPad app, which is free to all Apple iPad owners. This will bring the lake region’s only daily newspaper to the breakfast table or in your boat on the water in an instant.

Dispatch Publisher Tim Bogenschutz announced the release of the app on Friday, April 6.

The new app will be on display during this weekend’s Brainerd Lakes Marketplace Event at the Brainerd Community Center at the Dispatch booth. Stop by for a first-hand look at the iPad Dispatch.

Why is this such a big deal? Well, it offers subscribers one more way to remain in touch with the news from the lake while taking a family vacation, or for snow birders heading north from their winter haunts in the south. It’s our link to all of our audiences.

Dispatch readers will not be left behind other iPad users, who’ve grown accustomed to reading books, magazines and newspapers digitally. Coupled with the Dispatch e-edition, iPhone app and now the iPad app, the latest news from across town, around the state or anywhere on the planet will be available at the touch of a switch. Each page brings the latest news to life with the flip of a finger on your iPad screen.

Keeping folks in the Brainerd lakes area is important to the staff of the Dispatch.

Download the iPad app and stay in touch with the latest Twins scores, Warriors competition and the political happenings of campaign 2012.
